    To Be a Pioneer

    Optional descant: We are marching ever marching.
    We are marching, ever marching,
    Marching onward, ever onward.
    We are pioneers; we’re marching pioneers!
    1. You don’t have to push a handcart,
    Leave your fam’ly dear,
    Or walk a thousand miles or more
    To be a pioneer!
    2. You do need to have great courage,
    Faith to conquer fear,
    And work with might for a cause that’s right
    To be a pioneer!
